Try using these settings for your helper apps in your browser:
Code:
MIME Type		Helper
audio/m3u 		xmms
audio/x-scpls		xmms
video/x-ms-asf		xmms
audio/rm		realplay
audio/x-pn-realaudio	realplay
audio/x-realaudio	realplay

Set the preferences/options in your browser. I can't tell you the steps without knowing your browser.

Sorry, I have never used konqueror, so you are on your own or you will have to wait until someone that uses it and has configured the mime types correctly.

Doesn't kde automatically include the real audio plugin for that? I thought I had read that somewhere.

Explore all if konqueror's menus to see if you can find a section for changing helpers or mime type.

I use Konqueror. I just go through the dialogue -" Do you want to save *.pls or open..." - I choose Open, then choose XMMS - nice and easy.

Hey, actually it was sunny, at times...
XMMS - I listen to www.radioparadise.com so, go to their site, look down the right hand side, about 1/2 way down, there is a list - Windows Media 48k etc... I choose 128k Mp3 and click on it. I then get a dialogue window - "Open 'http://205.188.245.131:8048/listen.pls'?" so I choose Open, and then type in XMMS in the next Dialogue box. It then plays in XMMS.

Maybe this will help some too.....

I used synaptic to check if the needed packages where installed as follows.
In the box labeled Find Package, enter xmms and then select Applications/Multimedia . The file of interest is called xmms-mp3-1.2.7-21.pfr1 so you want to go ahead and install it.
You could also use other means of getting the file like http://www.tuxfinder.com .
Check to see where the file is located with the command: whereis xmms . In my case the first entry is what we want, /usr/bin/xmms .

Now if you go to a web site like the one mentioned http://www.radioparadise.com or even better...
http://www.bluegrasscountry.org/ then select mp3.

If a dialog box comes up asking what program to open it with, then you browse to the location /usr/bin/xmms

Then sit back and enjoy internet radio.
